We have new PAL dumps from the following PCBs:

 

  • Darius II (dual screen)

‘coolmod’ sent in dumps from two PAL20L8.Board is faulty so we are unable test GAL replacements but we assume dumps are good since devices were unsecured.Thanks to him.

 

  • Power Spikes (bootleg)

I dumped a secured GAL20V8 and successfully reversed its equations onto a GAL22V10.

After my repair of Battletoads I have tested (after converted them from binary to fuse map) all the PAL dumps from MAME set and I can confirm they are good.All .JED must be burned onto GAL20V8 or PALCE20V8.

‘coolmod’ sent in 256KB binary dump from a Hotdog Storm, I reversed it into GAL16V8 and he successfully tested it on PCB.Thanks to him.

I dumped the PAL from a Lup Lup Puzzle PCB (a new revision that will be added in next MAME release )

PLD was a secured GAL22V10 at location GAL1 which I successfully reversed into same device.

Muddymusic sent me a Chopper I PCB to look at.
There were 5 PAL’s on this board and all were soldered in so I had to desolder them to dump.
All the PAL’s were unlocked so these are native dumps in their native format.
They will need converted to GAL format to use in a GAL chip.

Night Striker and Jackie Chan PAL dumps added

Today an important addition to our PLD database thanks to ‘coolmod’, one of our finest contributors.We have from him PAL dumps of :

  • Night Striker

This is a quite rare board, a 3D shoot ’em up  developed and published by Taito for the Taito Z System in 1989.Board uses a lot of PLDs and some of them are present multiple times at different location.We have the complete PAL dump set (from PAL20L8/PAL20R8 and PLHS18P8 devices, as natrive dumps and 256KB binary respectively) and but for now only some have been reversed and successfully tested into GAL targeting device.

  • Jackie Chan

A 1995 fighting arcade game with renderized characters developed and published by Kaneko.Two ispLSI 2032A (PLCC44 package) PLDs dumped.Dumps are unested so for now we consider them as “assumed working” (as well as the all the other ones we had from this PCB) since devices were unsecured but we are looking for someone to test them back on PCB.

Thanks again to ‘coolmod’ for his contribution.
